    SR ALWAYS runs fast, when she run fast at a major championship I'll take notice. in your logic they would be even :shock:[/quote:r7y9h94p]

    Well that would be nice, but you 'take notice' a hundred times a year. Maybe you should hold off until the end of August.

I stand corrected and apologize for my error.
      Oh come on! Now you are just trolling :evil: :x

      No, there are no squeaky-voiced Russian long/triple jumpers on the doping list. There are plenty of real Russian doping cases, no need to invent new ones.

          That is wrong on so many counts.... only one of the Russian women who ran "out of her mind" at the Russian championships was among the group that got suspended. That was Soboleva.

          And they didn't test positive before/during the games. Indeed, they never tested positive. The ban was for urine-sample switching back in '07.

            Another thread derailing... This seems to have become much more common around here lately. What is up with that? Can't we keep the discussions about the sport and stay away from personal attacks? We all have different opinions about things, but nobody has a monopoly on the truth. When speculating about future or potential results of a particular athlete, can you do that without trashing someone else's speculation or thought? The maturity level is sinking to toddler sandbox politics and I think the majority of the people around here would prefer to not have to read such posts.

              Which Russian 400 meter runners failed to produce internationally in recent years?

                This is an interesting question you have posed. Every once in a while there comes along a group of people, who, while waiting outside of bulletin boards in single file, are relatively innoculous and great pussycats --- you'd find them unobjectionable as individuals.

                However, collectively, when the party at one location closes and the gates at the next one open, they rush in like madmen, resulting in what you've got on your hands here.

                Using a little elbow grease, I've been able to discover that there have been dress rehearsals here in the past with main characters who went by the names of eddie, paulie, Coach Barnet, xcfan, Rob and Satch, but the script has not been re-written to delete these scenes.

                So, undeterred by this reality, the show will go on with the substitution of old characters with new ones, and the plot will always remain the same.

                    They all had PRs in the Beijing final. Can't produce much more than that. :wink:

                          yeah the russians seem to run 49 400s, 156 800s, 357 1500s then most of them dont even make the finals in the worlds or olympics. i have noticed that too over the years. they seem to be more consistent in the field events though.

                                The 1500m runners have always done well at champs in recent seasons and the Russians had two Olympic finalists in 2004, three in 2008 and two world finalists in 2005. It's just the 800m who always bomb out. I wouldn't write off the Ruskies just yet and Krivoshapka won the European Indoors so she has the experience of running and getting through rounds.
